May has always been my favorite month.
As a little girl, I loved May because it was my birthday month. May 7... 7 is my lucky number too, that and 13 of course! I got to ride the May Queen float when I was in second grade.
In school, in religion, I identified with Mary the most. It was a big deal to be one that float. I felt so cool that I was the one chosen from my class of 2nd graders. When I look back at the pictures though, I think "whoa, what a bad perm my mom gave me"!! I thought I looked so pretty at the time! Wearing a long dress, flowers in my hair. I wish I knew who has one of those pictures because I would post it for all to see. I still adore Mary, she means faith, hope and love to me. I thought as I rode on that float about how Bernadette felt when Mary appeared to her. I was one lucky little girl too!
May is also the month my first baby was born, in 1981. Rebecca Jean made us a family of 3 on May 26th.
Then there is Memorial weekend, come on, who doesn't love that one??
Here's to a beautiful May... I intend to get outside and enjoy every bit of it! I will also continue praying to Mary, the mother of God, for she is... full of Grace.
